    Head was probably interested in the attention given to his racquets when he smashed four of them last year.

    I predict he'll smash six this year.

    Ti kaneis file? Ti lei to nisi mou?

    Baghdatis will hopefully get something going on late in his career, ala agassi. Such a pleasure to watch, at the least entertaining.

    Marcos gives the island something to rally behind and forget the everyday reality. Really wish he was a better ambassador though. Here's hoping he has a good year.

    Not everyone in Biz/First Class appreciates the look. I usually have a warmup jacket, not a hoodie. But some people are ok and ask if I'm an ex-pro. To which I say "only until the alarm clock goes off."

    @Finikas, thanks for all the great pictures!

    If he were to use the new speed he probably won't be allowed to before the unveiling on the eleveth.

    Probably, though I saw one of the finalists playing with the new Speed racquet in the AO play-off. (.....)


    On topic: Great news for Marcos!

    We'll see what he has when 2013 hits. Who knows what the wording of the endorsement contracts say? Could stipulate that he has to finish the tournament with the old stick. We'll know as January unfolds.

    That's not how it works. If he liked the Speed and if HEAD did not wont anyone to know the new cosmetics then the racquet would have been painted all black.

    Well if Safin didn't drive Head to bankruptcy i think they will be okay with the likes of Baghdatis...

    Photos of Marcos's rackets

    Here are a few pictures of his rackets from June 2012:

    From another thread:
    Interestingly enough, the bumper guard was labelled "Tecnifibre - 16 x 20". The racket definitely seemed to be from the Fischer Pro No.1 mold though. Funny that it didn't have Fischer or Pacific labelled on the grommet strip.

    Hope this can be of help,

    That's because he was with Tecnifbre before and the "315 speedflex" was a copy of his old Fischers...

    Sweet photos prostringing!

    Looks like the racquets were a bit of a collaboration... "Custom design and paint by Curt Stefan" (Bosworth) yet built to specs by P1... Interesting

    Thanks for sharing.

    Or maybe the Graphene is unbreakable, and that's their angle. :)
